There are many painful and troubling conditions that chiropractic care is designed to assist. Subluxations, disc herniations, lower back pain and all manner of sprains, strains, spasms and stress can be a tremendous source of discomfort for many people. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to treat these sometimes debilitating conditions by adjusting and aligning the spine.
Lower back pain is a common complaint, and chiropractic treatment for lower back pain is usually very simple. An “adjustment” refers to the force used on the vertebrae in order to align them properly again. An adjustment of the lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis, moving them back into a normal position, is the most common treatment necessary to give a patient relief.
A misalignment in the position or disruption in the normal movement of a vertebrae is referred to as a subluxation. Chiropractic care specifically addresses these issues and, in fact, doctors of Chiropractic are the only healthcare professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat subluxations. For subluxations that cause lower back pain chiropractic care is the most effective treatment available. It is low cost and has the best long-term outcome of any other treatment. Other treatments that usually involve pain-killers or muscle relaxers, or even bed rest, do not address the main problem of misalignment.
At Caring Touch Pain Relief the chiropractic care we provide expands far beyond relief of lower back pain. Our chiropractors address the many components involved in keeping your spine in alignment, which, in turn helps to keep your body running in top condition and keep you free from pain. This treatment encompasses bones, joints, soft tissues (ligaments and tendons), and muscles.
The main goal of receiving adjustments is to restore the spine to alignment and the body to its state of optimal health. Chiropractic care is meant to be so much more than merely relieving pain, but a natural and proactive process which can relieve your pain, but also make you feel great.
Drs. Kirk and Valerie McVay are experienced in all aspects of chiropractic care, and are always incorporating the most effective chiropractic techniques available to improve the outcome for their patients.
